Preservation Month Photo Contest, Ax Men and More Flowers...
Early Saturday morning, I took a few shots for the Preservation Month photo contest in our local paper. There are usually five photos of portions of historic properties; the person who correctly identifies the properties wins a prize.
Most of the time, I can immediately identify the homes or buildings. This year, I won't be playing along since I took the photos we will be using.
Taking those photos was the single redeeming activity I did this whole weekend! Evan and I, embarassingly, got hooked on an Ax Men marathon on the History Channel yesterday afternoon! Oh. my. goodness. I still cannot believe that we watched 9 hours of that silly show! I don't know how you get hooked into stuff like that! It is like watching a train wreck... you just can't stop yourself!
The only break we had was to visit with Audra, Brian, Gracie and Maverick when they stopped by and, for a short while, when we Skyped with Little Man and his Momma. It was a very good rest though... Of course, I may have bed sores from sitting on the couch so long! Ouch! So sad to have to admit!!
We watched right up until the season finale ended at 9 P.M.! Don't ever start! LOL! Idid learn that they dredge up logs 100-150 years old that had been ax-cut and were in the bottom of the rivers or swamps until these guys pulled them up. Some were heart pine trees that are extinct and others even more valuable. The builders or furniture makers use them for high end projects. One father-son logger team was paid $22,000 for 23 logs! What can I say, I was hooked!
Sorry, I know y'all are sick of flower photos... but, my Beloved sent these, too... and, he has asked me five times, "Have you made pictures yet?" LOL! Gotta love it! I hope each of you had a more productive weekend... or enjoyed it just as much as we did. Blessings ~ Tanna
